Some specs of your truck would help.

If you have an edge you can't put a spacer up front, you can crank the t-bars instead which is free

yeh they set way far in
looks real bad
the new 18's have a larger backspacing so they will set out farther
just got to figure out how much bigger on a lift i got to go to get them

You shouldn't need any extra lift to fit 33's. Lots of people run 33's with just a body lift.

If 32's are rubbing with a 3" body lift, than the problem is backspacing. I'm guessing your tires rub on the swaybar when you turn?
33x12.50's should fit fine with proper backspacing. I you posted specs on the wheels you are looking at we could probably give you more help about how well they would fit.

You'll run into the same rubbing problem with those wheels. You need a backspace around 3.5 to 4".
